Want to Learn BizTalk Server?

Until recently, I labeled myself BizTalk-curious but more accurately it would have been BizTalk-clueless (and...curious). I ordered "Foundations of BizTalk Server 2006" but haven't had a chance to tear into it yet.

Serendipitously, (now there's a word you didn't expect to read here...) my firm just hosted BizTalk 101 for a client. As a Microsoft partner, Microsoft was good enough to deliver a 3-day, online introduction training. Vishal Arora, the instructor performed brilliantly.

I'm certainly far from expert status but with this training, I at least can eliminate my BizTalk-clueless moniker. If you're a partner and want to get into BizTalk, this training is a great place to start. I recommend leveraging it in conjunction with a client.

Get Your Team Foundation Server Hate On!

Rollback a Ooops in TFS with TFPT Rollback

Rhut roe, Raggie. You just checked in a merge operation affecting 100's of files in TFS against the wrong branch. Ooops. Well, you can simply roll it back, right? Select the folder in Source Control Explorer and...hey, where's the Rollback? Rollback isn't supported in TFS natively. However, it is supported within the Power Tools leveraging the command-line TFPT.exe utility. It's fairly straightforward to revert back to a previous version--with one caveot. First, download and install the Team Foundation Power Tools 2008 on your workstation. Before proceeding, let's create a workspace dedicated to the rollback. To "true up" the workspace, the rollback operation will peform a Get Latest for every file in your current workspace. This can consume hours (and many GB) with a broad workspace mapping. To work around this, I create a temporary workspace targeted at just the area of source I need to roll back. So let's drill down on our scenario... I'm worki
